Diego Maradona is in line to be installed as the new Fulham manager, should Mark Hughes fall prey to the axe, according to Tuttosport.

The Welshman's side have been on the receiving end of a series of underwhelming results, having won only once in their last 15 games in all competitions.

And in their last five games alone, the Cottagers have conceded 10 goals, with the recent loss to fellow relegation strugglers West Ham pulling them down into the drop zone.

Fans were heard calling for Hughes' head during the course of the bitter defeat, and Maradona, who coached Argentina at the 2010 World Cup, is reportedly on his way to taking the reins at Craven Cottage.
